Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young girl named Nina recounts her feelings about her parents' divorce and describes what it is like to live in two households in this touching picture book. Everything is different from the way it was, and sometimes the behavior of the adults around her is upsetting to Nina. When she is with her mom, she wants to be with her dad. She misses her hamster, her cat, her playmate, and her favorite climbing tree when she is away from them. Many things about her new life upset her, but there are happy moments, too—she celebrates her birthday twice, and both her parents are there when she jumps into the deep pool for the first time. Her parents don't like each other any more, but they both love her and they make sure she knows it. This honest, uncomplicated account of divorce from a child's point of view will reassure and comfort young readers who are experiencing the changes that divorce brings to a family. 

Review:

"In this sensitive story translated from the Dutch, a rosy-cheeked girl named Nina talks matter-of-factly about her parents' divorce. 'One day, our home became too small for the two of them,' she says. 'So there had to be two houses: One for Mom. One for Dad. And two for me.' Talsma's paintings convey Nina's perspective on the adult world: her mother rides away on a bicycle, precariously balancing her possessions, and the two vibrant homes are separated by indistinct, sparsely drawn houses. As Nina spends time with both adults, she expresses what many children of divorced parents likely feel: 'I have two homes. It's strange. But it is nice, too.' Ages 3 — 5."
